Until serviced, Lenovo recommends that affected systems not be used.

The specific four-digit machine types that fall under this recall include 20HQ, 20HR, 20K3, and 20K4.

What will happen to my Lenovo laptop?

"Customers should confirm if they have a laptop impacted by the recall by validating the Machine Type (MT) and Build information as noted above in Q1, and then go to the web site: https://support.lenovo.com/X1C_5GEN_RECALL to confirm their serial number (SN)". It promises to do this with minimal delay. Nevertheless, if you own an affected model, Lenovo says you should stop using it immediately while you initiate a free inspection and fix.

According to Lenovo, the issue was discovered several weeks ago, and the company conducted its own investigations into the cause of the problem before issuing the recall this week.

There have been no reports of overheating in the United States.
